Paul Pogba’s agent believes it would take a world record transfer for his client to leave

Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola believes that the French sensation can leave Juventus in the summer if his client feels it is "the right moment". He also said that it would take a world record for the transfer to materialise.

21-year-old Pogba has established himself as one of football’s hottest young talents after arriving in Turin from Manchester United in 2012 as a 19-year-old. The combative French midfielder has helped Juve win back-to-back Serie A titles and has recently signed a three-year contract extension which will keep him at the club till 2019.

The Frenchman has established himself as an integral part of the Bianconeri and has been constantly linked with a move away. Raiola is already on the top of the situation and says he has potential destinations for his client in mind.

“Pogba can go to six teams

Raiola told French media house TF1, "Pogba can go to six teams. You don't need to be Einstein to work that out. If the right moment comes in the summer transfer window, we'll seize the opportunity. But if it's not the right time, and he doesn't feel it’s right, he could stay another year or two".

The Italian however warned that if Pogba decides to move, the suitor club may have to come up with a world record bid eclipsing the €100 million Real Madrid paid for the 2013 transfer of Gareth Bale. "He's going to beat it [the record]. If there is one Mona Lisa in the world, and you sell it, that's the price", he said.

According to the agent, Pogba shares Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s winning mentality. Incidentally, the agent has earned much of his reputation by managing the 33-year-old Paris-Germain star.

"He's like Zlatan. He has already established in his head where he wants to go and how to get there. He's already making his mark in football history. There is no player today of 21 years old who has already shown to the world that he can take a team in hand and change the destiny of the team at the top level. Paul has done that", said Raiola.
